more pics coming. i have to re size them all.

this is what i started with a 12/69 so 1970 2 door shell. the hoshino impul wheels i gave back. didnt like them at the time. sapporo wheels it was
Image

this was all the interior
Image

i did manage to snag the rear end set up with the sale. 411 r160 lsd with cv axles
Image

started swapping parts over from the wrecked 4 door. got the engine bay ready for the ka swap
Image

surprisingly the only thing to get mangled from the wreck was the radiator and fan. had to source replacements.
Image

engine is out of its donor
Image

car up on stands. i now find it less heart breaking if you lift the car over the engine. painted engine bays give me nightmares
Image

my buddy mikey came to help. i cant do it by myself. kas have a way longer tranny. its all about angle and muscle.you can see the carcass in the background.
Image

those aren't my burly arms. i was controlling the hydraulic ram and camera. he says it went in smoother than his l18 with zx 5 speed.
Image

mounts all bolted in
Image

swapped in a set of 06 350z seats
Image

transferred all the dash parts along with a black on black leather nardi classic. and rebuilt the heater box. its the pnw it gets cold.
Image

made and intake from spectre parts. the plenum and intake tube dont allow a full size battery. i dont want one in the trunk. odyssey pc680mj fits just right.
Image

couple months after i started working on it. almost ready to hit the streets

ok more to come! 6 in total. one is basically a princess the other a faithful servant.

started stripping parts. everything went bare metal. so i know by base, and to take care of rust.

i love factory paint come right off
Image
Image

the door sat around too long bare metal. i sealed it in dp40lf
Image

nasty rot but these are the fenders i want to run 68-69
Image
Image

the other side is very solid just the typical dents
Image

i only used evercoat z grip and metalglaze on this build. i picked up some panel beating skills but i didnt start with cherry panels. every panel on this car required a full skim coat except for the hood and roof. the metalworks system works great. im starting with bare metal.

Image

the beginning of a proper 68 conversion. i made it improper by using a later model dash. more on that later but you know what a 68 sss dash goes for?...
Image
Image

the beginning of a spot weld master. but i hate them now. i have undone countless
Image

you can use a sedan wiper section. its the same. rust never sleeps!!!!

Image
Image
Image


blasted the inside rot and made a patch panel
Image

all welded up
Image

it may seem all this work is out of chronological order. too many things going on at that time. but it is in order

rolled over the fender lip the old fashioned way. hammer and dolly. took a while. very carefully tapped it. i didnt want to damage the outer lip. i did not roll the whole fender. just where i thought the tire would contact the fender.
Image
Image

both fenders roughed out
Image

the door didnt need much. some skims on the edges and some dings. that is until i bust out the long block. me and that block were lovers
Image

removed the battery tray
Image

look at that paint just fly off!
Image

at the end of the day. all stripped. the rear passenger quarter is the only majorly noticeable damage. notice "death row" in the back ground
Image

Hey Phil, what are you guys using to strip the paint like that? Seems way better and faster than sanding it off, or blasting.

Sad to see the gold striped flat black died. Used to brighten my day when it drove by in SE Portland!

yeah it died. my injuries will be for life. ive been trying to figure out a power steering rack set up for a rhd car.

Image


i sold the blue dd 4 door to a guy in tigard. he was very happy. and eager to start making it his own. i saved it made it road worthy. bought a 87 325is e30 auto. i cant really hold a wheel with my left hand. has power steering. all i have to do is hold the wheel with my right. if i put a power rack on the 510 i can hold the wheel with my right. and shift with the left. i can assist my right with my left but with a non power car it hurts after a while.
